Recombinant Human Interleukin-16, 121 a.a.
Lymphocyte Chemoattractant Factor (LCF)
Human interleukin-16 (IL16) is also called lymphocyte chemoattractant factor (LCF) and it has three isoforms, which are cleaved from preinterleukin16. IL16 is mostly secreted by lymphocytes, epithelial cells, eosinophils and CD8+ T-cells. IL16 signals through the CD4 receptor, and has many functions, which include the induction of the IL2Rα on T-cells, the suppression of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication, the inhibition of T-cell antigen receptor/CD3 mediated T-cell stimulation in mixed lymphocyte reactions, and many more. Furthermore, recombinant human IL16 (121 a.a.) contains 121 amino acid residues and shares 85% amino acid sequence identity with murine IL16.
